Brain Boosters-Scrambled Words


Image via Wikipedia

It’s a beautiful day so I’m sitting outside enjoying the weather while getting my Vitamin D. Of course I’ve got a glass of green tea I’m enjoying with some herb goat cheese. Delicious!

Let’s try some scrambled words. These are great to help build your brain power and cognitive reserve. Scrambled words focus on problem solving, thought organization, thought flexibility, processing, reasoning skills, and executive function. Scrambled words are fun for all ages to enjoy. Make it a family activity or make it a  friendly competition. The important thing is that you’re working your brain,  building new neuro pathways and taking advantage of our brain’s plasticity. Keep trying new activities as this helps challenge the brain. By caring for and maintaining your brain and body, you are on your way to healthy aging, longevity, fighting Alzheimer’s and dementia, and improving your quality of life!  Don’t we all want to maintain our independence and age in place? So, dive in and make a commitment to become a lifelong learner!

Try unscrambling these words and let us know how you do! Have fun and enjoy!
